Much to the delight of jewellers, Indian consumers are making a scramble for gold in the build-up to Diwali on October 23 after a lacklustre festive season last year.Sales of gold jewellery and coins in October so far have accelerated in the range of 15-25 per cent more than a year before, although it is still early to firm up a precise forecast of demand this Diwali and Dhanteras, considered auspicious for the precious metal purchases. “After months of slowdown, things are finally beginning to look up,” a spokesperson for Tanishq, the country’s largest jewellery chain, said. “All the purchases that people had postponed are finally being made,” he said, adding that lower gold rates in recent days had helped accelerate demand.

The central bank permitted private agencies and banks to provide gold loans to the sector. But, the government has not lowered the import duty which is at 10%. According to The Indian Express, October 12, 2014:
